's lead role in the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi that cost the lives of ambassador chris stevens and three others and she did so knowing it was true. well, the man who defeated mccain in the 2008 presidential campaign takes this as a personal shot at him. how will he respond? will he name ambassador rice his new secretary of state to replace hillary clinton? will he meet mccain's challenge head on and send rice up to the capitol to go face-to-face with the enemy? tonight we study the battlefield and the firepower of the two sides in this year-ending fire fight. mccain sure wants this fight, but do his fellow republicans? do they want an older white guy taking on the competence of a young woman of color, a rhodes scholar of solid reputation? most important, what end does the president want for this match of fact and wits? i'm joined by michael o'hanlon of the brookings institution and jonathan landay. the intelligence reporter for mcclatchy newspapers. michael, thank you for this. i want to get to the facts. am i right, is the main charge here coming from mccain and the ot

thanks for giving me an alternative to morning joe. hey, just call us morning bill. donald francis adds mitch mcconnell's crying about being a minority and not having his voice heard. hey, how about the majority of us whose voice is not being heard because he's so bought off. good point. d says i was absolutely appalled at the number of members of congress who signed the grover norquist pledge. you were spot-on by calling them traitors! and harmony wants us to know her opinion as to why black friday exists peter. i'm from wisconsin she says and grew up with many hunters in the family. the day after thanksgiving was always a big hunting day. black friday started with hunters' wives going shopping because all of the men were out hunting. >> i know a lot of hunting seasons kick off now. >> bill: you know what? that makes a lot of sense to me. they're hunting for deals. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show."

by the president. senator collins was the more critical of the two. she took the ambassador to task for using intelligence talking points in the aftermath of the attack in benghazi. >> i still have many questions that remain unanswered. i continue to be troubled by the fact that the u.n. ambassador decided to play what was essentially a political role at the height of the contentious presidential election campaign by agreeing to go on the sunday shows to present the administration's position. >> senator corker declined to give deep details of the meeting but instead delivered a hit directed at the whole of washington. >> the whole issue of benghazi has been to me a tawdry affair. everything about it. i have found no heroes here in washington. >> and for the second day in a row press secretary carny defended the president's ambassador to the u.n. >> my view on this is the same as it was yesterday which is that the focus on and in some cases the obsessive focus on ambassador rice's appearance on a series of sunday shows several months ago is misplaced and misguided. >> and joining me now from t
discrimination in hiring homosexualities. they never discriminate, which he said to us. but when it comes to hiring gays it chews away at the american fabric of who we are. i think they do do good work, but you and i just thought--mostly it came out of my white-hot competition against you, my, like, blind ambition to outcompete you in everything. >> caller: you knew you were going to get your ass whooped on that. >> stephanie: easy for you to say now press. anyway, bill already announced it on his show but effective immediately we are not the salvation army is not going to be a sponsor. i believe--i don't know what the number was 1,150 was in my kettle. i'm going to match that and give it to the trevor project, which is my good friends here in los angeles. the nation's only 24-hour crisis hotline or gay and lesbian youth. >> caller: i'll join you why that with whatever was in our kettle. i'll do the same. again, it's sad to me because the salvation army has such a great reputation in almost every other area. they've done a lot of great work, and i really hope that they see moving forward
of congress what a a $2,000 tax hike would mean to you. write them a comment, tweet it using m2k. not y2k. we figured that would make it easier to remember. >> you have the president mobilizing the citizens to put pressure on the congress, ana marie. >> this is actually something pretty familiar to people who have been watching the white house for any number of election cycles. going back to, at least in my memory when i started in 200, you are trying to mobilize your apparatus. this is the time to do it, if you're going to do it. and you have obama supporters willing to retweet anything that the president says. i do hope that they can use this at this point. i'm not optimistic that this is something that can continue. people aren't going to remain as engaged. i do think that's probably what is going to happen, if anything. of course, it's still from a perspective hard to understand. it's only intel jabl if you buy into the weird social and political calculus that is the congress. >> but if he waits until january 3rd -- >> right. >> -- we will be over the so-called fiscal cliff, joy. >> right
it up. >> today i'm asking congress to listen to the people who sent us here to serve. i'm asking americans all across the country to make your voice heard. it's too important for washington to screw this up. >> and a new survey shows the president has the public on board in a new washington post poll, 60% support raising taxes on incomes over $250,000. a healthy majority. indeed, even some republicans appear to be under sway, by the force of reason. >> in my view, we all agree we're not going to raise taxes on people that make less than $250,000. we should just take them out of this discussion right now. continue to fight against any rate increases. try to continue to work honestly for a much bigger deal. >> oklahoma where the republicans agree with the president? well, that about turned speaker john boehner's blood into a red river valley of rage. >> i told tom earlier in our conference meeting that i disagreed with him. you're not going to grow the economy if you raise tax rates on the top -- on the top two rates. it will hurt small businesses. will hurt our economy. >> taxing
